Charity Projects
We run charity wellbeing projects across Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin. Over the past 15 years our charity work has reached over 39,000 people across the region. Below are some examples of our project work.

The Hive’s Wellbeing Projects provide a safe path to personal and community growth. We use inspiring, inclusive, creative experiences to transform lives, engaging professional musicians and artists to help those in our communities who face challenges in their lives.

Our project participants in 2021 include: care experienced young people, adult carers, young adults in touch with mental health services, siblings of young oncology patients, autistic young adults, young people with special educational needs, young people living in poverty and young adults living in supported housing.

All of our projects work towards four core outcomes.
